Dating is supposed to be fun and refreshing but when you start feeling exhausted and tired in a relationship then it’s time to move on. Taking a break fromdating is like quitting carbs from your diet, you cannot do it forever but it is necessary to detox yourself from time to time. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not asking you to dump every guy you date after a few months when the honeymoon period is over but let’s face it sometimes you cling on to a relationship just because you know getting over someone will be too much of an effort.

Here a few signs that you need to look for in a relationship to know that it’s time to call quits and let’s face it, it’s always better to dump than getting dumped. Not all of us will have friends like Carrie from sex and the city who will take us to Mexico to get over a breakup. So, do it sooner if you already know that it won’t last.

It’s is traumatizing: If you got out of a bad relationship and hoped that the new one will heal you but it turning out the same or even close to the last one then I guess that should be enough to get the hint that it is doing you no good.

Stopping you from being you: If your relationship is stopping you from achieving your dreams then trust me it is not worth it. Relationships and partners are supposed to help you grow so if they are stealing your freedom then there is no reason why you should be in it. Its time for you to keep dating aside for some time and first be yourself and achieve what you wish to and fall in love with your own self first.

You have forgotten about your hobbies: If you have given in everything to the relationships and finally find that your once favorite hobbies are forgotten and you are doing nothing apart from swiping left and right and tolerating tantrums of your loved ones then you need a break, seriously. You actually need some time to find yourself. So, better take a break and go on a solo trip here you can connect with your own self first.

Many people have concerns like what will they do with their lives once they end their long or short relationship because they feel they will have nothing left in their lives. So, they immediately start dating another person. But that surely does not help.

You can always travel, pamper yourself and of course, spend time with your friends and family whom you have so long ignored because of your rushing hormones.
